                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

Dal Shang, near the arena:

     The young Lord Protector, Synthia Lapella, looked out the window into the dark
street.  Her manager, Killjoy, was supposed to meet her here at the new guildhouse,
but the older woman was long overdue.
     She glanced up at the sky, but couldn't see enough of it to tell the time; there
had been bells from somewhere nearby, but Synthia hadn't been paying attention to
them.  "It's got to be after midnight," she said out loud.  The words echoed a little
in the empty room.  She turned toward the door but stopped.  She'd have no idea where
to go looking for Killjoy.  "Could she be lost or hurt?  This city is so much bigger
than Simtakka....  I hope she is okay."

Dal Shang, The Drunk Dragon:

     "So...you're a man...hic manager of a team?"  The words came out slurred, but
Killjoy couldn't do anything about that.
     "Not anymore.  I just own this place now."  Bullet was obviously drunk, too, but
he seemed to be holding himself together better.
     Killjoy's eyes were narrow slits when the young woman walked up and placed two
more drinks on the table.  Killjoy stared at one of them for a second, then slowly
picked it up.
     "Now, there are a few of them still around," Bullet said, "like Screwdriver
behind the bar, you met him.  And there is Cooler here, she just dropped off our
     "Hi, sweety," Cooler said to Joy.  A small smile crossed her face.
     "There are two others, but they aren't here."
     "You should...re...open."  Joy finished her glass.
     "Ha ha.  Well, I don't think so."  He leaned back in his chair.
     "Why not?"
     Bullet frowned.  He didn't like the turn the conversation was taking.  "I like
doing this."
     "Ha!  You're afraid to lose."
     "You win all the time, but you only do what you're good at," she said, staring
him straight in the eyes.  "You're afraid to try something different and lose."
     "That's not true!"  Bullet was on the defensive, and he hated that.
     "Well, if it's not true...restart your team."
     For the first time that night, Bullet was speechless.
     Bullet looked away and noticed the time, seizing the change of topic quickly.
"It's getting late.  Do you need help getting home?"
     "No, I can make it."  Killjoy stood.  The room started to spin.  She sat back
down, carefully, because she wasn't sure where the chair was.
     "Screwdriver, help her home," Bullet said.  Turning back to Joy, he asked, "Will
you be able to give him directions?"
     "Okay."  Bullet nodded.  "Get her home safely, Screwdriver.  Me and Cooler will
close the place down."

Between Simtakka and Dal Shang:

     "Who are you?"  Man-O-War handed the woman her third cup of water.
     "My name is Triss."  She drained the cup and held it out again.
     "Why did they have you hostage?"  Man-O-War refilled her cup.
     "I worked for a merchant, and we were traveling to several villages with fruits
when they attacked us.  I'm not sure why.  We didn't have anything worth stealing."
She looked away, blinking back tears.  "They killed Jerall and the horses, then
burned everything else.  But they spared me."  She took a shaky breath.  "The leader
of the group seemed very confused and upset.  He kept saying 'where are they?' and
'they were supposed to meet us here'.  And then Toben came and saved me."  She looked
over at Long Shot.  "Thank you again, m'lord."
     He just nodded at her.
     Man-O-War stared into the night for a moment, then stood.  "Well, let's not hang
around here anymore.  Whoever they were going to meet might show up looking for them.
We shouldn't be here for them to find."  The others began moving around repacking
their gear.  "Triss, we are going to Dal Shang.  You can come with us, or we can
leave you in some town along the way."
     "Thank you, m'lord.  I am from Dal Shang; I'll go there with you."

Til Death Do Us Part guildhouse:

     Synthia was pacing back and forth, very concerned for her good friend, when the
front door opened.  A strange man shouldered through it carrying Joy.
     "What happened?"  Synthia rushed over to Joy, very worried...until she smelled
the alcohol on her friend's breath.  "Oh.  I'll take it from here."
     "She just had a bit too much to drink," Screwdriver said.
     "I can see that."
     The look she directed at him was unfriendly, and he felt like protesting that
nobody had forced the drinks on her.  But it didn't look like this young woman wanted
to hear that tonight.
     "Thank you for getting her home."
     "Well...um...have a good night, then."  He backed toward the door as he said it.
     Her "Good-bye" was cold enough to freeze a man's ears off, and he escaped
     When the door clicked shut, Synthia carried Joy over to a pile of blankets that
she'd made up as a bed.  She hoped her manager ended up with a stiff neck from the
hard floor as well as a major hangover for worrying her like this and then coming
home drunk.  Well, at least she was safe, not mugged in some alley or something.
     Synthia sat down in a corner, pulled her knees up to her chest, crossed her arms
on them, and rested her head on her arms.  "At least she isn't dead in a ditch

In the middle of nowhere:

     The sun had just barely popped up from the horizon.  A group of six men on
horseback rode up to a campsite and looked around.  The fire was burned out, the site
     "What happened here?" the man on the first horse asked.
     The others dismounted and investigated the area.
     "Three men died up here," one man reported.  "Only one of them had his sword
     "Another one here," a man called from halfway between the bodies and the
blackened stones of the fire.
     "Were these the men we were supposed to meet?" the leader asked.  He dismounted
     "I believe so."
     "Here by the wall," one said.  "This rope.  It's been cut."
     The leader nodded.  Of course it had.  "How many in the group that attacked
     "Looks like only one man."
     The leader hissed.  "One man killed all these men?"  He looked around.  "There
were supposed to be five men meeting us.  Where is the last one?"
     "There are two groups of tracks.  One man went that way, two this way."
     "Okay.  Jerik, Tirol, you two follow the tracks after our contact.  The rest of
us will follow these tracks after the girl."
     "When we find the contact?"
     "Kill him."

Dal Shang:

     Silver Bullet walked over to his bed.  There was a blonde woman curled up,
facing away from him.  He crawled in and embraced the sleeping woman.  "Good morning,
Brandi," he said softly into her ear.
     "Bullet, it's early, not now," she said sleepily.
     He rolled over onto his back and she cuddled closer.  "I'm going to restart the
team," he said.
     "What?"  She still seemed more asleep than awake.
     "Yup, we are going to get it up and going and again."
     "What's gotten into you?"  She yawned and blinked at him.
     "I met a woman last night."
     Her eyes came into focus.  "Oh?  Should I be worried?"
     He laughed.  "No, you're my girl."  He kissed the top of her head.  "She's a
manager from Simtakka.  They closed the arena there, you know, so she moved her team
here.  She kinda motivated me, challenged me, actually."
     "So, just like that?"  She sat up, excited.
     "Just like that," he confirmed.  "I'll go to the Commission today and get it
     "Yes, dear?"
     "It isn't so early anymore."
     "Oh, yeah?"

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt DAL SHANG will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS is pushed out of top team by SAND DANCERS, who 
came from 4th with a 4-1-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for 
there are sorrows to drown for STEEL SYNDICATE, whose 0-4-0 this turn dropped them by 
5 into 7th.  SAND DANCERS stable has parlayed this turn's 4-1-0 into a 3 space move 
up the rankings.  This brings them up to 1st place.  Good work, guys!  The POSSE 
guild has had a 4-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know 
where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, REVEREND BLOOD fought MAGNOLIA and 
gained 19 points and contributed to POSSE's 4-1-0.  L.A. WOMAN has lost to TEBAS TEN 
KOGAN, falling 20 points, while helping make KILLER TUNES a 1-3-1 turn.  This turn 
DEADWOOD challenged KO LAO-DEN in what was DAL SHANG's Title bout.  Defending his 
title for another turn, DEADWOOD kept SAND DANCERS' warrior, KO LAO-DEN, from 
claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable 
sources that The Blazing Unicorn uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  KILLER TUNES has cause to stand tall, as they were DAL 
SHANG's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And guess 
who avoided KILLER TUNES stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was GOT IT FOR 
CHRISTMAS.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that CRACKERMAN from 
KILLER TUNES was DAL SHANG's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  SKORDAHL has departed DAL SHANG, 
leaving REFUGEES without their 3-5-0 warrior.  Question, just what was his team doing 
at the taverns last night?  Is it really true that DAL SHANG has more dishwashers per 
capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper--

The only reason I came back to this arena is to fight LA Woman and she decides to sit
out a fight.  Must have had a nail appointment.  Hopefully she shows this turn. --

Woody -- Yes, we have to give you the nod on Ugly Duckling.  We're both allergic to
feathers. -- Hemorrhage and Crackerman

Jaego -- Hope you have a shop vac, here I come again. -- Crackerman

M2 Mallard -- Hey, I can't let a duck get away with stuff like that, you know. --
Jaego Sarl

Ah, the joys of standbys.  Gotta love 'em. -- Jeri Tavan

Long Shot -- Welcome to Dal Shang, and thanks for that win and the political points
that will see me, well, not to the Isle--who would want to go there?--but safely
retired. -- Tebas ten Kogan the relieved

And another standby.  I like fighting them in the arena, but not out of it.  They get
so riled, you know, at not being able to USE the stuff they learn, and by now they've
learned lots. -- Kassal ten Dru

Yep, but when you think about it, them not being able to use what they've learned in
the arena is a GOOD thing, because they have so much experience, we'd none of be able
to take 'em. -- Ko Lao-Den
P.S.  Especially if they were allowed to train stats.

Hemorrhage -- I'm glad I'm tone-deaf, you skill-sucker. -- Sigban
P.S.  Some kind of vampire is what YOU are.

Deadwood -- Ah...this is where I say, "Gee, I'm glad you won, I don't want to be the
Duel2Dude," right? -- Dakoril

These dwarves are worthless and weak, and they don't belong here. -- Gobarl
P.S.  More or less.
P.P.S.  Actually, it wasn't ME that said that.  Somebody put the words in my mouth,
you know?

Valarion -- Another anti-Duck person, I see.  But you will get yours! -- Skordahl

Virginia, No Santa -- Fare you well.  If I graduate, Jorja promises me retirement,
which is the only thing that makes this bearable.  Well, okay, not the only thing,
but it's a big factor. -- Ko Lao-Den

     The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire want to announce the joining of a new
member who cherishes the same ideals, respect and loyalty that we hold dear.
     From this day forward let all know that Blackstorm is now a Dark Knight of the
Desolate Empire Alliance.  With him as our chosen brother, our alliance only becomes
stronger.  Let all his foes become ours, and ours his.  May all our enemies' blood
flow freely and give NO quarter in war.
     This is also a warning to any cowards, bullies, etc....  If you play with fire,
you WILL get burnt!!!

To those involved, no, I have not abandoned your stories.  But I've been letting them
drift, and that has to stop, so I am taking the time to make sure that I know where
they are going, more than just "what happens next" dreamed up on the fly, before
resuming work on them.  No new stories will be started until at least one of the old
ones has concluded, for the same reason:  quantity can't substitute for quality.
Your patience in this matter is appreciated. -- the Scribe
